"Yes" times a bajillion to this place! Just walking past this place and sniffing the air in its vacinity is heavenly! Perfect tiny and overwhelmingly decadent donuts = yes. My favorite at this moment is the Samoa donut, but this will change I am sure as they are always showcasing new and fun flavors!

Enjoyed some delicious treats from Peace, Love and Little Donuts! They were small but mighty. Great flavors. The coconut chocolate was yummy! Such a great concept. I definitely recommend tasting and enjoying these donuts. Great place! Enjoy the many flavors of mini donuts!

We stopped here because we had a Groupon. The donuts are the perfect size to let you try a few flavors. Definitely a "hole in the wall".

We love going this location in the Strip. Lemon ginger and apple pie are awesome. The hole in the wall aspect suits this place well.

I reached out to PL&LD to make a special order 30-donut cake for my husband's 30th birthday. The owner quickly responded with a price quote and details about the order. The donut cake came out absolutely perfect and it was a hit with all of our friends!! The donut cake came with a variety of delicious donut flavors. I would... More

We have been going to PL&LD for years. The original shop is a tiny walk-through located near 21st coffee on Smallman. Our favorite Saturday activity is to get coffee and then fresh donuts to walk around the Strip. The cinnamon donuts are amazing - especially when fresh from the fryer. They also offer GF donuts from Gluuteny at their suburban... More

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and stumbled upon these delicious cake donuts! They're so cute and yummy and a 6 pack was a perfect dessert for the two of us! I highly recommend you check them out!

The restaurant is very small, just a hole-in-the-wall space. The greasy smell is overwhelming when you walk in. The donuts are very small and all alike, and they are dipped with toppings of your choosing. The fryer is visible as soon as you walk in, and the grease appeared to be old. The whole place did not seem very clean.... More
